Constellation No 7. - Cygnus (New Version)

In Greek mythology Cygnus is often associate with several distinct legendary swans. Many of which involve gods and people transforming into swan. However, I think my personal favorite is idea that Cygnus, together with other avian constellations near the summer solstice, Vultur Cadens and Aquila, may be a significant part of the origin of the myth of the Stymphalian Birds, one of The Twelve Labours of Hercules.

I wanted to post this in conjunction with the summer solstice but its already the 21st here. However, only by less than a hour so I’m going to say close enough. Enjoy!

Original ‘Poe Dameron from Star Wars The Force Awakens’ Watercolour Portrait.

I decided to paint a Poe Dameron portrait because The Force Awakens feels like coming home (I love it so much) and as with everyone else I’m shipping Poe and Finn like hell! I pray Disney make that happen! ✨ #Illustration #Fawnlorn #MattHayton #StarWars #TheForceAwakens #PoeDameron
